just announced on the svr.co.uk website:

The return of the 'Lady in Red' . . .
Happy Christmas everybody! We thought we'd make your Festive Season that little bit more special with our first Autumn Steam Gala announcement...

No. 6233 Duchess of Sutherland is our first star attraction for our Gala from September 20th - 23rd, and will be appearing in stunning LMS Crimson Lake livery.

Paired with our beautiful rake of LMS carriages, the 'Duchess' will look right at home hauling an authentic train. Having last visited us in 2013, then in British Railways green, No. 6233's 2018 return will be a sight to behold.

The 'Duchess' is a real icon in the world of railway preservation after hauling the Royal Train as part of HRH The Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations in Wales in June 2002, and then again hauling the Royal Train in 2005 over the famous Settle-Carlisle line with HRH The Prince of Wales on board.

No. 6233 Duchess of Sutherland appears care of ‘The Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust’.

More information will be available soon...

A return to the big engines for autumn gala then, though the Spring Gala has some big engines as well.
